We should appreciate the work they do every day keeping our school clean and warm. Fred Young and Earl XVilkins0n Sched 7 We have nine bright-col- ored busses which bring chil- dren from Fremont Town- ship, Clear Lake Township, part of Jamestown Township, and part of Branch County, Mich., to our school each day. Our bus drivers are safe and reliable in taking the stu- dents to and from school. We wish to thank them for their excellent job this year. Mr. Lyle Keith drove the Michigan bus for a little over three years. Last year he drove the bus which took the Bas- ketball boys to and from their out-of-town games. His tragic death last November brought sorrow to all who knew him. 'Wee Mm Eehzml 744 Whed Lyle Keith Back row Cleft to rightl-Harold Mounts, Russell Abbott, Clarence Huss, George Hess, Arthur Leroy.

Miss Davis' excellent supervision, our ideas were submitted, dis- - cussed, revised, and Hnally accepted or rejected. To increase interest in our selling campaign the boys challenged the girls to a selling contest. Although the girls were out-numbered almost two to one, they made a good stand and, in the end, treated the boys to a party. To help us finance this year book we sponsored several money-making projects, including running a canteen during the County Baseball Tourney and presenting a Donkey Basketball Game in February. We genuinely hope that you will get as much enjoyment from the 1949 Vistula as we have had bringing it to you.

Among the thirty-two were some who had never been here be- fore. These were: Wauneta Rakestraw, Billy Bryan, Esther Fritz, Elnora Post, Richard Brown, Adam Steele, and Edward Adams. Later in the year Lil- lian Scott joined us from Pittsford. During the year we suffered our initiation and enjoyed quite a few parties. Mrs. Margaret McLain was our sponsor and our class oflicers were as follows: President, Bob Hardingg Vice President, Bud Keyes, Secretary- Treasurer, Fred Ireland, Student Council Members, Francis Parsons and Virginia Foster. In 1946 we entered school again as "Silly Soph- 0mores" and found we had acquired three more members: Vivian Dergins, Raymond Fritz, and James Shafferg but we had lost Eva Mae Schaeffer and Vir- ginia Hantz. Later in the year we welcomed two more members-Bob St. Johns and Bob Ryan, both from Orland. Before the year was over, however, we lost Estel Parsons, Bob St. Johns, Franklin Beebe, and Fred Clay. This year Mr. Max Mitchell was our sponsor and our officers were: President, Maynard Stafford, Vice President, Bob Harding, Secretary- Treasurer, Virginia Fosterg Student Council Members, Bud Keyes and Janet Hadley. This year we had the pleasure of initiating the green freshmen. I'm sure the memory of it will linger in the minds of our class and those of the under-classmen. We felt very fortunate in having a member of our class as Fre- mont's candidate for Queen in the Fisherman's Jubi- lee. She was Janet Hadley. When school started again we entered as "Jolly Juniorsn. Two new members joined us but left in a few days. They were Ardith Betts and Beverly Bond. We had also lost Billy Bryan, Robert Ryan, lla Mae Straw, Orville Davis, and Edward Adams. Mr. Robert I-Ienney was our sponsor. Our otiicers were: Presi- dent, Ira Clark, Vice President, Fred Irelandg Student Council Members, Bud Keyes and Vivian Dergins. This year we put on our first class play. It was "Professor, How Could You", a three-act comedy. We also enjoyed the Junior-Senior Banquet which was held at the Valencia Gardens in Fort Wayne. Now we are "Sophisticated Seniorsn. We gained two new members: Donald Green and Edmund Gir- rel. We were sorry to lose Bob Waggoner, who mov- ed to Oklahoma, and Lillian Scott who moved to Arizona. Mrs. Joyce Reed was chosen as our class sponsor. Our class officers were: President, Francis Parsonsg Vice President, Maynard Staffordg Secretary- Treasurer, Fred Ireland, Student Council Members were Barbara Foulk and Bud Keyes. This year our Senior play was a three-act comedy called "The Adorable Impn. We are very proud of the boys who represented our class in varsity sports throughout the years. The Seniors were honored by the Juniors of the County at a reception held April 22, at Potawatomi Inn in Pokagon State Park. The Senior class felt deeply the loss of our principal, Paul Bailey. Mr. Bailey was a friend to us all. He understood us and helped us with all our problems, no matter how large or small. His memory and his effect on our lives will remain with us, always.

In our Freshman year we began our high school career with twenty-hve pupils, losing two, however, along the way. Our class officers who guided us through the year of green and white were: Richard Baker, Presidentg Barbara Foulk, vice president, Shirley Smith, Secretary-Treasurer, and Shirley Harding and LaMar Vose representing us in Student Council. Coach Davis was our sponsor. The main event of our freshman year was our initiation. Under the blue and gold our class leaders were: Shirley Smith, President, Shirley Harding, Vice President, Phyllis Smart, Secretary-Treasurer. LaMar Vose remained in Student Council and Nancy Moreland was the other representative. Mr. Davis again did a grand job as our sponsor. In September we had 19 pupils but by the end of the year we had decreased to 16. When we counted noses this fall we discovered that there were 17 "Jolly juniors". We had three new pupils this year. Jean Rude joined us from Edon, Ohio, Mary Lou Paul from Detroit, Michigan, and Norma Pabst came from Bronson, Michigan. Our officers were: Richard Baker, President, Shirley Smith, Vice President, Shirley Harding, Secretary-Treasurer and LaMar Vose and Phyllis Smart in Student Council. Nancy Moreland and Phyllis Smart are the canteen managers with Shirley Smith and Donna Schaeffer as their assistants. Although we chose a different sponsor this year we kept it in the same family by choosing Miss Davis, whom has been most capable and a great hel1p to us all. Shirley Smith, from our class, was elected as cheerleader for the second year. LaMar Vose, Richard Baker, and Lawrence Garman were active in basketball and they all cer- tainly did a fine job. The two most important events of this year were our class play "A Little Honey" which all the juniors enjoyed presenting, and the reception which we Juniors were very happy to give for our upper classmen, the Seniors. We shall be back next year as "Sophisticated Seniors" for our final year in high school.

S me Jlidlafuf Although we entered I-Iigh School on September Z, we werenlt oflicially welcomed until October 16. You guessed it! Initiation! We chose Mr. Nlitchell as our sponsor. Our otlicers were: President, Christine Frahmg Vice President, Barbara Loucksg Secretary-Treasurer, Dorothy Smart. We started with the largest class in High School, boasting of thirty-six. A notice- able fraction of the male population participated in Baseball, Basketball, and Track. Most of our girls took part in G.A.A., and Band, and Chorus. The Student Council members were Joan Abbott and Jerrie Somers, who did a very fine job. We kept Joan as our representative a second year and George Baird re- placed Ierrie. When we came back this year as "Silly Sophomoresn we found a new member, a former Buckeye, James Knapp, who came here from Montpelier. We lost Barbara Gault, who moved to Waterloo. We also found, much to our sorrow, that we are now the second largest class in High School as the "Green" Frosh took the lead in population. This year our sponsor was Mr. Latier, and our oihcers were: President, Dorothy Smart, Vice President, Barbara Loucks, and Secretary-Treasurer, Kenneth Leland. We have proved that women are not the weaker sex by having a majority of female officers both years. They say that revenge is sweet and we proved that old adage by giving the Frosh a rousing welcome into High School, via initiation. Although we drained the town's supply of onions, lipstick, rouge and mascara, it was a lot of fun. Kenneth Leland, Bill Peeler, Bill Palmerton, Bob Brown, and Fred Binkley played second team basketball this year, while George Baird aided and abbetted the varsity team. With a few exceptions these same boys participated in baseball and track. Two of our soph girls, Marilyn Harding and Barbara Loucks, were chosen as cheer leaders this year. Many girls participated in Chorus, G.A.A., and Band. We have enjoyed the past two years and are looking forward to the future as jolly Juniors.

Other members of the class took part in chorus, band, G.A.A. and the operetta. In April We gave an assembly program for the student body. We wish to express our gratitude to the faculty and upperclassmen for the kind- ness and patience shown us during the school year.

The word Affalrlifs in this high school means very much to everyone, here and in this community. From the first day of school to the last, both boys and girls are engaged in some form of sport. The boys have baseball, basketball, and track in that order. The girls have soft-ball, volleyball, and basketball. 7aa4:h The first track meet of the 1947-48 season was a 3-way meet at Howe M. A., Howe, Indiana, with Fremont, Howe and Hamilton competing. The Ca- dets came out on top, Fremont 2nd, and Hamilton 5rd. The Eagles then went to Butler for a 3-way meet with Butler, and Ashley. In this meet the Eagles placed Znd. Butler had one of the strongest track teams in Northern Indiana. The third track meet was held at Howe M. A., between Shipshewana, Howe and Fremont. The Eagles came through in 2nd place, again. The State Corner Conference Championship was decided at Garrett. Butler emerged the victor, for the second straight year, with Waterloo, Fremont, Ash- ley, Hamilton, Avilla and Wolcottville following in that order. The Indiana High School Athletic Association Sectional Track Meet was held during the month of May. Maynard fSpitJ Stafford, Fremont's half-miler was edged out by Nye, of Elkhart, for the first place ribbon, but he earned the right to run in the State Tournament finals at Technical High School at Indianapolis. Coach Davis and Maynard Stafford made the trip to Indianapolis where Maynard made a credit- able showing. Because of the large number of con- testants, the half mile was run in two heats. Staf- ford's time in both the Sectional and State meet was 2:06.S, a school record for this event. We hope to see him do the same or better this year. We are taught not only to play the game but to respect the other fellow and to be good losers as well as winners. In our sports we have been taught to emphasize sportsmanship and fair play. And in the future we will try to carry these teachings into our lives, as we strive to become better and more reliable citizens. Those participating in track were as follows: Francis Parsons, Bob Harding, Lefty Bressler, Dick Brown, Maynard Stafford, Bud Keyes, Bob Hutchins, John Eastes, Bill Palmerton, Harold Ferguson, Ken- neth Leland, Doc Vose, Ira Clark, Lawrence Gar- man, Fred Binkley, Edward Antrup, Bill Peeler, Jack Stafford, Paul Caswell and George Baird.

The Eagles had another successful season in baseball, earning second place in the County Standings, and a right to play in the County Baseball Tourney. The season started with Fremont winning their Hrst two games. The first opponent to fall before them was Metz, the one-sided score being 20-0. The Eagles visited Salem the following week and had to come from behind late in the game to win 4-3. They dropped one to Scott Center by the score of 4-2. Scott's pitcher had the Fremont boys confused as they weren't able to make many connections with the ball. The Eagles came back to trounce Hamilton in a Corner Conference game, 10 to 4. They then defeated Orland, the defending county champions, by the score of 9 to 5. Their second defeat proved to be an upset, as Pleasant Lake defeated them 5-3. The Eagles had to come from behind again in the Flint game to edge them 4-3 in their last game of the season. The Steuben County Baseball Tournament was held at Fremont on October 11-13-16. The weather made it very difficult to play and some of the games had to be moved to a later date. However, when the weather did permit, we found Salem losing the first game to Flint, and, in the second game, Hamilton being edged by Fremont by a small margin. The finals found Fremont and Flint battling it out for County honors. The game was close until near the end, when Flint put on a rally to knock out Fremont 9 to 3.

The Fremont Reserves also boast a fine record this season, having turned in 14 wins and only 5 defeats. Because of their line record and their general ability they were looking forward to the County Reserve Tourney with anticipation. They were greatly disappointed, then, when it had to be cancelled, due to a severe sleet storm. 4 A . eft to l'iQl1l7Fiill'lPill'1l l14llIL'kS, 1lIkll'llYl1 Hardin: and Shirley Smith. Next season's Varsity will be made up almost entirely of Reserves, as all but one of the first team will graduate this year. Our Fledgling Eagles have some height as well as individual ability and should prove to be another winning Combination for Fremont. Most of the Reserves are Sophomores, so next year's varsity will probably boast many Juniors. It also means the Eagles will have or should have another tough team for the next two years, at least. Now that we have seen what they can do as Reserves, we know what to expect of the team when they wear the Varsity uni- forms. "Good Luck, Future Eagles." CI-IEER LEADERS Shirley Smith, Marilyn Harding, and Barbara Loucks were chosen by the student body as our cheer leaders for the year. We wish to congratulate the girls for their fine work and colorful showing.

Coach Davis THE SCRAP-HAPPY EAGLES The "Little', Eagles turned in another fine season of basketball. Their lack of height was never a determining factor as to the outcome of a ball game. The players had speed and all seemed to have a charm for the basket, which accounted for their balanced scoring. They had plenty of spring, which could be shown by their ability to get in on the rebounds, and to out-jump many of their taller opponents. For the third consecutive year the Eagles showed their basketball superiority by winning the County Tourney and the Blind Tourney. This is the first time Fremont has won the County Championship three years in succession. The Eagles won the County Title this season by the score of 70-69, defeating Metz in the final game for the third year. The Eagles won the 1949 Blind Tourney by walloping the Pleasant Lake Spartans 69-35, in the Hnals, making it their third successive year for winning the Blind Tourney. The "Little" Eagles or, as the coach would say, "My nine little po- niesf' earned the reputation of coming from behind in the last minutes of play to win many a hard-fought battle. fC0l1fillZlf'd 011 Page 38D Ivlanagorsz Dick Baker and Dale Deemer Tlazs Page Is Sponsored By: KEYES' BARBER SHOP Pffgf' Tbfffy fi Q . , "S" Look at the smiles. Coach and team look happy, and no wonder! They view some of the permanent trophies that have been collected during the past three years and will remain at Fremont High School. The team has also had the Dope Bucket and the Liberty Bell. We hope the Future Eagles will continue to win these mementos in years to come and be as proud of them as we are. GEORGE BAIRD QCOofciej Sophomore Cookie came to Fremont from Farmer, Ohio. He proved to be a good man in both baseball and basketball. With this year's experience he ought to be plenty tough next year. We, the graduating Eagles. Wish you lots of luck next year, "Cookie." Za WORDEN KEYES, gimp senior This makes his third year on the team. Bud was one of our most capable rebounders and scorers. He was an important man on the base- ball team. "Good Luck," Bud. MAYNARD STAFFORD, qspffp Senior Spit was a valuable man in both baseball and basketball for three years. He was a good re- bounder and our leading scorer. "Keep it up," Spit. FRANCIS PARSONS, cFf617HljfJ Senior Franny Was another three year member. He was a good defensive man and a caipable scorer. He was also an important member of the baseball team. "So long", Franny. LQMAR BRESSLER qtfffyy senior This is Lefty's first year on the Hrst team. Lefty could be counted on to hit from out on the floor. He was a regular on the baseball team. "Good Luck," Lefty. GEORGE LEFTY IRA J. O. RBI. 4' Q. P5 n Pafmcfe IRA CLARK, fl. cg senior Above-SPIT This was his first year on the team. Ira was one of our most valuable re- Be1OWiFRANNY serves. His defensive play got him in a lot of games to stop a "hot" opponent. "Keep fighting, I. C." ROBERT HARDING fBobQ Senior A one year member, he proved to be a capable reserve,especially Where there was some extra height needed on the rebounds. He was an important member on the baseball team. "Happy Marriage, Bob." HAROLD FERGUSON, Uiergiej Senior Fergie was another reserve who had some height that was frequently called upon to help out. He was valuable in baseball, too. "Goodbye, Fergief' RICHARD BROWN, OJ Senior J. O. was another capable reserve, always ready to go into action when called upon. He was a regular on our baseball squad. "Keep plugging, O." Since this year's team was composed of eight Seniors and only one under- classman, George Baird, the reserves will undoubtedly make up next year's Hrst team. Most of the second team players got in some action on the first team some time this year and do have some experience in first team ball. Their excel- lent record in wins this year and the experience they were able to get on the first team should give them a strong ball club next season. They have individual ability as well as height. From what we have seen of their play as second teamers, we get an idea of what to expect of them as next year's "Eagle" squad. We, the graduating Eagles, Wish you lots of luck next year and hope you have as good a season as we have had, if not a better one. "You Can Do It." BUD FERGIE BOB THE LONG AND SHORT OF NEXT YEAR'S PROSPECTS THE SCRAP HAPPY EAGLES fC0l1filIIlL'!1 from page BSQ There was a new team on our schedule this season, the Elm- hurst Trojans of near Fort Wayne. They used a two team attack which did not seem to bother Fremont in the least until late in the game when the Trojans ousted the Eagles 48-42. The Eagles look forward to meeting the Trojans again next season and hope to even the score. The Eagles record for the 1949 season was 16 wins to 7 defeats including all tournament games. The Eagles wish to express their appreciation to their coach, Maurice Davis, for his outstanding coaching, and willingness to help any of the players with their individual problems. He has coached at Fremont for the past three years and has made an enviable record. Three boys, Maynard Stafford, Francis Parsons, and Bud Keyes have been on the varsity team all that time. Dur- ing these three seasons they have been trying to fill the trophy cases by winning the Steuben County Basketball Tournament and the Blind Tourney for the past three years in succession. They twice won the Corner Conference Championship, tying with Waterloo in 1948, for which both teams received a trophy, again in 1949 being the only Corner Conference team with a 5-1 record. Their 1947 baseball team also won the Corner Conference Championship. The Eagles have made a fine sectional showing as well, by winning their way to the semi-finals in 1947, and in 1948 getting to the finals. Thus, they have won 8 crowns and 6 trophies, a most commendable record. During the past three years they have a record of S3 wins to 18 losses.

GRADE BASEBALL The grades played three games of baseball this fall, two with An- gola and one with Orland. They lost the two to Angola by scores of 2 to 1 and 4 to 2 and lost to Or- land 6 to 3. Several of the grade baseball team will be back next year and they hope to do better. CHEER LEADERS The Cheer Leaders, Janis Baird and Nancy Keith, did a swell job this year and We hope they gained some experience which will help them in high school in future years. Thanks for your Hne spirit, girls. .Janis Baird, Nancy Keith. GRADE BASKETBALL Although the Palefaces played very hard and did manage to improve considerably during the year, as far as wins and losses were concerned, they were unsuccessful. This was the first year for many of the eighth grade boys, but if they keep on improving they should give some of this year's Freshman boys a lot of competition on the second team next year. The caliber of grade ball in the county was improved this year and there were many line teams represented. The County Grade tourney at Metz was very well attended, and all who witnessed it witnessed some exciting and well played games. The tourney was won by Scott Center.

Slucfenl' enamel!! The Student Council is an organization made up of two members from each high school class. Its duties are to work with the student body and faculty and to reach an understanding between them, and to help promote the students' ideas and wishes. Although there are no set dates for the meetings, the president calls a meeting whenever anything important arises. The representatives for the high school classes were: Freshmen, Phyllis Beams and Jack Sprague, Sophomores, Joan Abbott and George Baird, Juniors, Phyllis Smart and Lamar Voseg Seniors, Barbara Foulk and Bud Keyes. The Student Council held its first meeting on October 6, 1948. The election of officers was as follows: President-Bud Keyes. Vice President-Phyllis Smart Secretary-Joan Abbott and LaMar Vose Miss Davis was chosen as our faculty advisor. The first duty of the Council was to plan the Hallowe'en Carnival. With the help of Mr. Latier, chairman of the carnival, it turned out most successfully. The Council planned the election of cheer leaders, which took ,place October 27. They also counted the votes and announced the winners. The responsibility of ar- ranging assembly programs was delegated to the program committee which was ap- pointed by the Student Council. The program committee and the Council planned the Christmas program together. The Council took care of the decorating and gift exchange. The Student Council of ,48 and '49 wishes to thank the faculty and student body for their help and co-qperation during this school year. This Page Is Sponsored By: H. L. BEAMS Page Forty-one Erma!

The band, organized and trained by Mrs. Ramsay, continued to show improve- ment and strength during the year. New members have increased its several sections so that it is a quite well-balanced high school band. At the beginning of the school year the new members were Jean Rude and Gloria Conway. Other new members who entered during the year were Rose Mary Mitchell, Alice Hadley, JoAnne Taylor in the clarinet section, and Christine Frahm, Mary Waters, June Keyes, Ruth Schieber, and Ronnie Follet in the percussion section, and Gayle Doster in the baritone section. The band made its first public appearance at the Metz basketball game on Novem- ber third in the Fremont gym, and played at all home games throughout the season. It was a main feature at the annual Christmas program on December 20th, and also played for Commencement on May 18th. Awards were given to those who had completed one or more years in the band. Those receiving senior awards were Virginia Foster, Iris Ann Schaeffer and Paul Hollev. Page Fvffy fwv This Page Is Sponsored By: BURL B. BAKER, Trustee fznealehowa Several times a Week the pupils in the study hall may hear the familiar sound of the chorus practicing. The boys meet on Wednesday and the girls on Monday. This is the second consecutive year the chorus has been under the direction of Mrs. Miriam Ramsay. This year the chorus has increased in number over last year until it consists of fifty-six members, six boys and fifty girls. Stress has been laid on part singing, which has resulted in good harmony and a better blending of voices. The group has made several public appearances this year. Among them were the operetta at the Hallowe'en Carnival, the annual Christmas Program, Baccalaureate Serv- ices, and several assembly programs. One of the main events of the Hallowe'en Carnival was the chorus operetta entitled "Dawn Boy". Several of the members had solo parts While the rest of the members sang as a group. The operetta was unusual, fanciful, very well done, and was greatly appreciated by the audience. At the Thanksgiving Chapel the chorus sang two numbers, "Thanksgiving Hymny' and "The Prayer of Thanksgiv- ing." The chorus set a good background for the portrayal of "Why the Chimes Rang" at the Christmas program. "Nazareth" was the main number sung by the chorus at this program. The numbers sung at Baccalaureate Services were: "This Is My Country" and "The Angels Sing." The members of the chorus as well as those who heard them thoroughly enjoyed the results of the time and effort spent for this activity.

FUND'-Six This Page Is Sponsored By: FREMONT EAGLE OFFICE Glau Playa In 1948 the junior Class presented their play, a three act comedy, 'lProfessor, How Could You!" on April 21 in the high school gymnasium. The play was directed by Mr. Henney, who, we think, did a Hne job. The play was a story of a Professor, who could become dean of his college if he could get a wife. His friend John and family rally around to help. John offered his secretary, a curly-headed little minx who couldn't spell . . . an ideal wife! Grandma's candidate was Tootsie Bean, a bit plump, but a good cook. Vicky, one of the Professors students at school, who is longing for revenge, proposes a friend, Valerie, a Southern charmer who made a fool out of every man she met. Grandpa won't tell the name of his candidate! Convulsing scenes fol- lowed. All three girls were invited for supper and Grandpa makes each one think the Professor proposed an elopement, and they all appear ready for the dash to matrimony! There were plenty of laughs when the irate girls faced each other-especially when, to save the situation, John dressed as a woman came in and said he was the Professors, long lost wife! The three girls consoled themselves elsewhere and Grandpa's candidate won as the Professor found a wife in the little spitfire Vicky! The cast follows: Adoring Grandma, Barbara Foulkg Mischievious Grandpa, Francis Parsons, The very proper butler, Bud Keyes, Plump Tootsie, Vivian Dergins, The pugilist brother, Richard Brown, john, Robert I-Iardingg Cute Priscilla, Virginia Foster, The charming Valerie, Viva Worthingtong Saucy Vicky, Janet Hadley, The woman- hating Professor, Harold Ferguson. The Senior Class play "The Adorable Imp" was presented Wednesday, December 15, 1948 under the di- rection of Mrs. Joyce Reed. The play proved to be a roaring success and the class enjoyed presenting it. The plot of the play revolved around seventeen-year-old Betty Lou Gordon, who must play the part of an eleven-year-old imp because her mother, Pamela Gordon, has told a wealthy admirer she is only twenty- nine! So that she might get the new admirer to propose to her, Pamela invites him, his grandfather, his grand- father's ward, and his cousin, to spend the week-end. To make matters worse, she also tells the grandfather that her mother is only forty-six! Those troubles plus the fact that the maid has a habit of hearing all, seeing all, and telling all, are only a few of the worries of the Gordon family. From the time the Pickrellls arrive until the climax, the story is one hilarious time for all. How the admirers of Grandma and Pamela pose as the new cook and butler and play all kinds of tricks on the guests, and how the Imp finally gets her man formed the super-hilarious climax of this riotous farce. The cast was as follows: Betty Lou Gordon, Barbara Foulkg Pamela Gordon, Janet Hadley, Abbie Simp- kins, Virginia Fosterg Malvina Barclay, Iris Ann Schaefferg Hortense Hostetter, Esther May Fritzg Brian Barclay, LaMar Bresslerg Ross Waldron, Francis Parsons, Dilworth Pickrell, Harold Ferguson, Winston Pickrell, Richard Browng Clint Purdy, Robert Harding, Imogene Van Rydon, Vivian Dergins.

Let us focus upon the class of 1949 of Fremont High School and their accomplishments. We are highly elated at the picture before us. George Crow, who, just ten short years ago, was a meek, humble member of the aforementioned class, has since planted more corn per square inch than the entire output of Mr. Carter's Liver Pill Factory. There are Barbara and Francis Parsons, the most sought after evangelistic team in America - they are now holding a mass revival in Ray, Indiana. No doubt Maynard John Stafford's skill on the basketball floor has enabled him to gain fame and fortune as the only violinist in the world who can render a complete concert while wearing boxing gloves. James Shaffer, who, I would like to add, is no less famous, is his accompanist. Iris Schaeffer has continued with her high ambition to become a nurse and is now Supervisor at a famous New York hospital. Bud Keyes is genuine proof that education pays, for he is now assistant to Arthur Murray in Fort Wayne. ' A news item in the society column of the Fremont Eagle tells of the recent visit of Admiral Ira Clark, U. S. N. Wauneta Rakestraw - that famous Powers model, has just won additional fame on a television program in Hollywood. Mr. Eddie Girrell took over the Stork Club several years ago and it has become even more famous under his supervision. After your sumptuous meal is over, donit fail to stay for the floor show, and the magnificent performance by those famous "Sunkist Orange Blossoms" of California - Richard Brown and Donald Green. These boys have won high honors of the year for their graceful ballet dancing. And now we call attention to Adam Steele and Fred Ireland. In a pie-eating con- test in China, Adam emerged the victor with Fred trailing by two bites, and Humphrey Pennyworth a close third. Harold Ferguson, that handsome gentleman, though born north of the Mason- Dixon line, several years ago succumbed to the charms of a southern bell, and now lives with his family at Rabbit Hash, Ky. They have two sets of charming twins. Raymond Fritz, that power-house of learning has occupied a seat in the Senate, lo! these many years. His attractive and efficient secretary is none other than Janet Hadley, the No. 1 student of the class of '49. That handsome and debonair bachelor, LaMar Bressler, has amassed a sizeable fortune in the sewage disposal business, proving again that education pays and pays. Clayton Fansler, that benighted Thespian, has achieved great fame and fortune doing what he loved most during his senior year in High School. For many years he has played the lead in "Macbeth" on the legitimate stage in New York. Last June we had one of our 1949-ers from Fremont in the headlines. The reason for all this publicity was the heavyweight title bout between Paul Holley, better known as the Q'Smiling Killer" and Jersey Joe Walcott. The new champion, Mr. Holley, is now visiting in Fremont. Hi-ya Champ! In reverse of this great achievement, and in the field of more refined entertain- ment, we find our talented Duane Crall making his debut singing the title role in the opera "Pagliacci". Virginia Foster Michael has recently been crowned the "Farmer's Wife of the Year." Regardless of the heavy household duties she must perform due to her large family of six fine, red-haired boys, she is very active in club work. Elnora Post has achieved great success in athletics. For the past six years she has coached the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, and they have an undefeated record. Robert William Harding, who is perhaps Indiana's best-loved and most widely- known truant officer, has jurisdiction over five counties. This ambition was no doubt realized through his own high standard of attendance during his high school years. And last we come to Vivian Dergins, who holds the unbeatable record as winner of the International Walkathon. It is estimated that she has walked 29,768,459,344.6 miles in the last ten years. However, we feel that her success is due largely to the excel- lent help received from that devoted and faithful trainer, Esther Fritz. And so, kind friends, we come to the close of our examination of the class of '49.

We have come a long way together, yet our journey has barely begun. Having been led thus far by our parents, teachers, classmates, activities and clubs, we are now on our own. Our paths will no longer follow the well-marked trails that we have been privileged to follow while here at Fremont High School. We are now given the duty of choosing our own paths which we may blaze as new trails for those who will come after us in search of their gold. We realize that not all of us will reach the gold we seek. For some, the price of constantly striving to better ourselves and our surroundings, may be too high. Some will start off in a blaze of glory, only to drop out of the race when the path becomes didicult and obstacles arise. However, others of us will persevere to pan the world for a pure gold, weed out hate and allow love and friendship to flourish, blaze trails through cold wars and try to obtain Peace. Constantly, we will be striving for the bet- terment of our school, our community, our homes, our churches, and our nation. We hope we have learned something of the trails worth following to a satisfactory destina- tion, and to distinguish them from those which lead only to an impasse. This has been a part of our goal while at Fremont High, and we hope that we have fully appreciated the opportunity to profit by the thoughts and experiences of others, before we begin our "Lone Journey" toward our ideals and 'KSuccess." With the hope that this short trip through our school has given you a better under- standing of it and its meaning, we bid you a fond farewell and sincerely hope that, in years to come, this 1949 Vistula will hold close to you these memories of Fremont High School that have been the biggest stepping-stone in our advance towards SUCCESS, and memories that are so dear to us.

During that year gold was dis- covered in California and many, many people rushed to the West, with the hope of reaching the place Where the gold -had been found and obtaining a share of the treasure. Some of them succeeded - they reached the gold. Others dropped off along the route and staked their claims at diiferent places that prom- ised a life for them. There in the wilderness they started life all over, making the best of what they had and receiving a reward, not the nuggets of me- tallic gold they had started to seek, but the gold that we seek, such as Contentment, Wforld Peace, Enlight- enment, World Brotherhood, Faith, Loyalty, Health, Determination, and Success. In 1949, the present time, we, the Seniors, must rush on through life to reach the goal that we have set for ourselves. As the 1849'ers did, so will some of us drop off before our highest goal is reached and try to make a success of our lives no matter how close we are to the place where we started. We will be expected to pan the World to secure a pure goal as our fore- fathers panned the dirt for pure gold. We shall have the duty of cutting our way through forests of cold wars to obtain World Peace, be given the task of fighting germs to gain Health, and be expected to dig deep into unknown places for Knowledge, Wisdom, and Understanding, we will have to weed out all hate so that Love and Friendship may flourish, we shall be taught to expect the unexpected so we can have Happiness at all times. When we have done this we will be well on our way to Success, but we will not have the highest success until every nation of the world has Freedom. As we've already stated, some of us will drop off somewhere along the line, but others of us will push on to achieve these goals for ourselves and all mankind. Now to our understanding teachers, parents, loyal classmates, and Fremont High School, we, the Seniors, bid a fond farewell and take one step farther toward that goal for which we have thus far strived. 9 5 4 I Q ' .W sf.-N'::,.1 'X Q--:fs-w0"" , ,.

O. D s 9 . I This year our school and community suffered the loss of a dear friend and outstand- ing leader, Mr. Paul Bailey, principal of Fremont High School for the past six years. Mr. Bailey, born and raised in Fremont, was always deeply interested in the stu- dents here at school, and also in his many friends throughout this community. He help- ed all of us to become better individuals and better citizens through his influence and example. His main interest was in this school and he constantly worked for the betterment of it. He was interested in the scholastic and athletic achievements of his students and willingly gave the help they needed to carry them through. Another of his main interests was in the sports field, in which he took an active part. He was always seen at the games urging the boys on to victory, and we are sure that no man was ever prouder of a group of boys than he was, whether they Won or lost. After teaching at Fremont a few years, he accepted a job as coach at LaGrange, Illinois, and moved there for a short time. Upon his return to Fremont, he became principal of this school and held that position until his death. Mr. Bailey's theory of achievement, which was "Not to advance is to recede"- has become such a part of us that we use it in our conduct, our school activities, our sports, and in our everyday living. Our interpretation of this theory is: We must improve. We must be better and do better than we did last year, last week, or yes- terday. We cannot stand stillg we must go forward or backward. If we don't improve we get worse. It is impossible to remain the same. We shall long remember Mr. Bailey for the work he has done for his school and community. Therefore, it is with deepest regret and sincere devotion that we, the Seniors of 1949, dedicate this year's Vistula to his memory which will always be an essential part of Fremont High School.
